Applying For and Processing U.S. Student Loans

Before you begin your application process, we recommend you review the comprehensive resource for U.S. Federal Student Aid, Funding your Education: The Guide to Federal Student Aid. Students who are U.S. citizens, eligible non-citizens and who are enrolled in at least half-time in an eligible degree program can apply. 

Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements

Federal Aid students enrolled at Laurier are required to meet satisfactory academic progress requirements.  Laurier is required to ensure that all Federal Aid students maintain a minimum level of academic progress.  Funds are awarded with the understanding that students will make progress toward their chosen degree. 

The academic progress of students is evaluated prior to the disbursement of Federal Aid before the start of each academic year to determine eligibility for continued aid and after each term funded by US student aid.
